Verification may be received after the information due date, but prior to the effective date of closure. When this occurs, complete a determination for benefits on the appropriate screen.
When the case is closed, reopen the case on REPT and redetermine benefits.
Increase the benefits on the appropriate screen as follows:
For CA, increase benefits for the first regular benefit issued after the date the verification is received.
For NA, increase the benefits with the first allotment issued ten days after the date the verification is received, but no later than the month after the month the verification is received.
Send the appropriate change notice. (See Change Notice Requirements)
NOTE There is no requirement to allow ten days to notify the participant that their benefits will increase.
When verification is provided after the effective date of closure see NA Compliance After Closure.
For CA, when the verification is received on or after the first day of the month the benefits stopped, do not reopen the case. The participant must reapply.
